The HobbyZone Sport Cub S 2 Bind N Fly Basic with SAFE technology is a versatile and easy to fly small trainer, easily flown in backyards, parks or your local sports field. This model is based on one of the all-time most popular trainer aircraft ever designed for learning to fly radio controlled (RC) airplanes, the Sport Cub S, and builds on this models solid reputation with updated telemetry capabilities and exclusive SAFE technology that helps to prevent crashes. These updated make learning to fly easier than ever, and the Version 2 Sports Club's ultra-micro size allows for more flying options than found with larger, less forgiving planes.

The fun doesn't stop after you learn how to fly. It's lightweight yet durable air-frame is equipped with a powerful electric motor that delivers long flight times and provides plenty of speed and power to perform aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls and even inverted (upside down) flight. That means the Sport Cub S 2 is a model even experienced pilots will appreciate and enjoy flying – and can also use to teach others to fly. This Bind-N-Fly Basic version is the perfect choice for those pilots because it allows them to use their favorite Spektrum transmitter along with batteries and chargers they may already own. Available in a RTF and BNF, and both versions arrive 100% factory-assembled – no assembly required.

The plane is great.

But I want to say just how great it is dealing with AMain Hobbies. I have just had one of the worst Customer Experiences I have ever had in dealing with one of the major RC companies (which shall remain nameless but I'm sure you can guess!) It has been a breath of fresh air to deal with AMain and their Customer Support. THANKS!

The Hobbyzone Sport Cub S is a great little trainer plane. The only issue I see with it is best to fly on dead calm days, where I live that does not happen very often so it can be a challenge in the wind. When it is not windy the safe technology does an amazing job keeping it level. I would love to find a place to fly this plane inside as I think it would be amazing for that.

Overall it is an amazing little plane. if you are just learning I would say this is a great place to start.

Enjoying product, but problem with motor, only half power after using plane less than 10 times. Have purchased gear box and motor to replace.
Also single usb battery charger doesn't work. I bought a multiple battery charger that works fine.

Otherwise plane flies well. With low motor output (about half previous full output) am gaining experience in slow flight maneuvering.

HobbyZone Sport Cub S 2 BNF Basic Electric Airplane w/SAFE (616mm)
This is my second sport cub s2. It’s an awesome little plane just make sure you fly it in very light wind. I lost the first one because I made the mistake of flying it in 13 mph wind and it just sailed off into the distance. I used the remote that came with the rtf and just bought a bnf version. That being said the remote that comes with the rtf doesn’t seem to have that far of range, which also led to me losing the plane that day as it become unresponsive to any controls. The safe technology is awesome and the panic button has saved me a few times when I decided to go to the intermediate or advanced modes. I would just buy extra batteries right out of the gate, the thing is a blast and gets about 6 or 7 minutes before you hear the transmitter tel you it is low and it’s time to land. I got the 45c batteries and 25c batteries and I do thing the 45c offers a little more power and they are the same price I believe. They make a charger that can charge all 6 at once which is great and while you are flying you can just use a power bank and charge them up to keep the flying going. I’d recommend this to anyone starting out like myself!
